The difference between ABS and non-ABS emergency braking
At a Lexus safety features event in Alameda, California, on September 16, 2010, a professional driver explains and demonstrates the difference between how a car performs with and without anti-lock braking.
Mitsubishi L200's Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
Have you ever seen an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) in action? Mike Brewer
demonstrates how the ABS on the L200 makes a real difference when it counts
by regulating braking effort to prevent the wheels locking.
Mandatory ABS on Motorcycles?
Based on findings that antilocks significantly reduce motorcycle crashes,
including fatal ones by more than a third, the Institute is seeking a
federal requirement that manufacturers equip all new motorcycles with this

Power Steering Animation
Pedders Suspension. Australias number 1 shock absorber steering and
suspension specialist explores the argument for remanufacturing vs
reconditioning power steering units. To maintain the highest levels of
quality and safety Pedders remanufactures its power steering units. All
units are re-manufactured to the standard of a new original equipment gear.
This animation highlights some major differences between re-conditioning
and re-manufacturing steering gears.
Mercedes-Benz Actros Safety Truck - Active Brake Assist 2
Mercedes-Benz führt im Schwer-Lkw Actros die zweite Generation des Active
Brake Assist ein. Dieses Sicherheitssystem kann jetzt noch mehr: Leitete es
bisher vor langsamer vorausfahrenden Hindernissen bei Gefahr eines
Auffahrunfalls automatisch eine Bremsung ein, so wird der neue Active Brake
Assist 2 auch vor stehenden Hindernissen aktiv, etwa einem überraschenden

Secrets of Driving Like a Pro
You love driving, and you think you're pretty good at it, but how well can
you really drive? The chances are, whether you passed your test two or 20
years ago, you don't give too much thought to improving your driving skills
or the basics of maintaining your car; yet driving well can mean more than
just keeping you out of trouble on the roads.

Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) - Toyota New Zealand
This system optimizes the braking effort distributed between front and rear
axles. Vehicle stability during braking is improved in conditions that fall
short of triggering the ABS. EBD helps minimize stopping distances
regardless of load conditions.
Mercedes-Benz: Automated driving [English]
Mercedes-Benz have applied automated driving to conduct safety tests. Their
main objective was test their cars safety as if a human is driving it.
Parameters like speed, angle and timing cannot be simulated and it is not
really safe to risk a human driver during tests. Mercedes-Benz is the
leading manufacturer with regards to technological developments of cars. It
is known to assist in fast tracking the progress and execution of airbags,
three point safety belts, ABS, ESP and other automotive developments. Thus,
automated driving systems have been improved for test driving purposes.
Even though the said system has been used for some time now, they have
presently developed a program that would tackle additional driving factors
such as blind spot recognition systems, lane change warnings and night view
